One man's trash ....

Nate's been working hard in our workshop, aka, our second bedroom. We found this dresser and night stand at a garage sale for $15. Nate went to Home Depot and spent about $45 on new handles, stain, sand paper and paint brushes. So for $60 total, we have beautiful new furniture for our bedroom. Here are the before and after pictures. I think he did a GREAT job and we saved a ton of money! Imagine how much we would had spent at RC Willey for this stuff.

Another one of our great finds was this vanity from the DI. We bought it for about $45 and we ended up using most of the leftover supplies from the dresser and night stand. Since Nate worked grave yard this week, he had tons of time to work on it. He sanded this puppy on all day on Tuesady from 11 am to about 6pm. All I can say is WOW! That's a long day. It looks so awesome. We have one more thing to do before it's finished. We need to find a mirror that fits the frame. If anyone knows where we might find a place to get specially sized mirrors for cheap, please let us know!

What do you think?
